Help with JS

Hey Dinoguy1000! Guess who this is! Well, sorry for being a pain in the a$$ all the time but I really need help with this one. I created a subpage (User:Montechristo95/monobook.js) trying to customise my skin and especially the bars on the left. I have inserted the media-wiki monobook js and tried to make some changes on it but although in the preview it seems all right, when I save it nothing happens. Reloaded the page to be on the safe side but the problem remains. Think you can take a look at it and see what's going wrong? --Montechristo95 talkcountemail 22:08, October 30, 2010 (UTC)

Well, for starters, there's a pretty big difference between HTML and JavaScript. ;) You don't need to copy stuff from the page source to customize your sidebar; there are instructions on how to do so somewhere on Wikipedia - you may find something by looking through wikipedia:Help:User style and related pages. Also, whenever you edit your monobook.js file (or other .js files) you have to bypass your browser's cache before you'll see any differences, even if you preview first. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 22:20, October 30, 2010 (UTC)
I have already visited the above Wp articles; or at least most of them. Really sad to say they all seem Greek to me xD. Personally, I see no other way to create Js or CSS apart from copying entire piceces of the code directly to the page and then alter them at will. Still though,, that does not seem to work in this case. As for clearing my browesr's cache, that's what I meant by saying that I reloaded the page (Ctrl + F5 or any other combination I could find). --Montechristo95 talkcountemail 14:27, November 1, 2010 (UTC)
Try the following code:
addOnloadHook(function(){addPortletLink('p-cactions', 'Special:CreatePage',
                   'Create a page', 'ca-createpage', 'Create a new page using the article creation wizard', '');
Note that I didn't actually test this, so there's a small chance it'll break, but hopefully not. =) You can change the name of the link by changing the "Create a page" text (make sure to leave the apostrophes and comma in place!), and you can change the tooltip by changing the "Create a new page using..." text (again, make sure not to touch the apostrophes or comma). Cheers! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 05:33, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
*sigh* Tough luck mate. I'm afraid the code does not work. I rememberd to clear my browser's cache but the toolbox section (and every other section for that matter) remains unchanged... Of course it could be my fault but I don't think I made any mistakes or forgot anything during the "Copy & Paste" procedure. --Montechristo95 talkcountemail 13:36, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
All right, that means I'll have to play around with it myself at some point. I'll see about looking at it later today or tomorrow. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 14:58, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
No need to rush yourself; by all means, take your time. It may look like it but I'm not in any kind of haste at all. Cheers! --Montechristo95 talkcountemail 20:06, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
All right, since Wikia finally seems to have removed Monaco completely, I took the time to look at this myself. The following code works for me (it inserts a link, "Create a page", at the bottom of the toolbox on the left-hand menu):
function() {
    addPortletLink('p-tb', wgServer + '/wiki/Special:CreatePage', 'Create a page', 'ca-createpage', 'Create a new page using the article creation wizard', '');
Cheers! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 19:37, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
YES! IT DID WORK! Thanks a million mate that's gonna save me a lot of time. Since you customise your mono, could you also tell me how to remove sections from the left-hand bars (like "Random" or "Wikia" for instance) which are totally useless?
Oh and by the way, I really liked that "Talkback" temp, I'm gonna start using it as well. --Montechristo95 talkcountemail 19:39, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
I'm assuming you know a bit about CSS in this explanation, so stop me if not. =) The simplest way to hide that stuff would be to view the page's source code and find the HTML for the section you want to hide. Locate the class or ID name assigned to it, and then add .classname { display: none !important; } or #idname { display: none !important; } (depending whether it's a class or an ID, and replacing "classname"/"idname" with the actual name) to your monobook.css file, save, and bypass your cache. It would be possible to hide them with JavaScript as well, but probably ultimately more trouble than it's worth, since it's trivial to do so with CSS. As for {{Talkback}}, I've been meaning to copy it here forever, just never got around to doing it until now. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 21:03, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
It worked like a charm. Believe it or not, I don't have anything else to ask you today. Once again thank you for your patience and help, you are a star. Cheers! --Montechristo95 talkcountemail 22:54, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
No problem, happy to help. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 23:53, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

Image Trouble

Thanks for burn it out of this site. I will try to remember to hit you up if I saw the one that don't match to the forum's theme. ^_^ --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 02:54, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

No problem. You can go ahead and continue asking Delt this stuff (unless he asks you not to, not that I think he would ;) ) since I have his userpage on my watchlist anyways, and can thus deal with this stuff for him if he happens to be offline for the time from the original request to when I see it. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 06:15, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

Lester in Grade School Image

Just to let ya know, there's a picture that showed Lester attending the school is however a red-linked instead of "Image". Can you fixing it? I think it's under "Gain the Enemy's Trust". --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 22:09, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

Could you give me a link to it? I can't find the image or page you're talking about. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:17, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
Lester? --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 18:25, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, it wasn't obvious to me what page you were talking about from your original message (on that note I'd appreciate if you would link to the pages/files you're talking about when leaving me messages ;) ). Backtracking through the page history, it appears that File:Luciano-Duel Academy.jpg is the image you're looking for. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 19:03, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
No problem, but I would rather have it "Re-named" so it match the main name. Luciano is no longer his 4kids name. --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 19:12, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
Done. In the future, you can use {{Rename media}} directly on the file you'd like renamed. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 19:16, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

Fullwidth Monobook

Is this what you were looking for?

body.with-adsense #content {margin:2.8em 0px 0px 12.2em !important;}

-- Deltaneos (talk) 23:24, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Aah, I suspected I was having trouble with specificity (especially since diffs *were* full-width), thanks! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 00:44, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Decks for Free

I can handle the page. You don't need to make a bot for it. Jon Kovacs (talkcontribs) 21:06, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Well, an archive bot would be able to handle *any* pages, meaning it could be used for user talk pages and the like, as well. ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 03:57, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

Primo Stand Up Image missing

Link here

Just to let ya know that icon of the image is now red words instead. --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 22:05, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 04:01, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

Strange User...

There is one new user that post trash/inappropriate images in two different pages so far. He is Roboticwaterfowl. Can you please fixing him up before he infested the site more. I also revived the pages he had screw up so far. --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 22:49, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

I've blocked him and deleted the page he created. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 04:02, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, that's good... Didn't realized that you respond till your latest message catch my attention... --FredCat Ta.P.F.P.J.R.W.S.Th.P.S.C. 00:06, November 12, 2010 (UTC)


Hey mate! Do you happen to know what this does? Can't really find out... --Montechristo95 20:42, November 11, 2010 (UTC)

It's got to do with picture attribution, but I don't think the picture attribution stuff appears on Monobook, only on the new Wikia skin. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 23:57, November 11, 2010 (UTC)
Cool thanks. And what is it with you disliking the spotlights? --Montechristo95 20:24, November 12, 2010 (UTC
They add to the length of the page and I never use them anyways (if I want to find a particular Wikia wiki, I'll either Google the subject or just hack URLs). ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 23:55, November 12, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, now I get it. Yah, that's basically what I'm doing as well... Anyway, thanks! --Montechristo95 00:20, November 13, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for cutting down the size of my signature. --Montechristo95 23:39, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

No problem, just your friendly neighborhood HTML/CSS Nazi at work... =D ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 23:43, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

AWB typo page

We didn't quite finish this discussion User talk:Deltaneos/Archive 26#Typo fixing and name changes. My last comment there probably wasn't very adequate.

Given we now get to use a local checkpage, are we able to set this up ourselves? Do we just need to create a typo page like wikipedia:Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos and add

<!--Typos-en: local_typo_page&action=raw-->

to the checkpage? -- Deltaneos (talk) 11:22, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure, I stopped following AWB development a while ago. It should be easy to test though, just create a new typo list with some obvious change, add it to the main typo list, and run AWB with typo correction and see if it works. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 17:07, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Hey there

I just wanted to say thanks for your edit and correcting me on the 5D's manga page. :) I was just removing the citation needed thing and I had forgot to update the page to correct the info about when Viz's version of the 5D's manga was coming out. (I had just got the magazine with the preview in it the other day, and forgot to correct it. I had originally put November because that was what a friend told me) So thanks. Oh! I'll try to remember to check back here in case you reply, but if you want to feel free to just reply back on my talk page, since sometimes I forgot. I'm still fairly new to wiki editing, heheh. ^^; 1dbad (talkcontribs) 22:57, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

No problem. Just out of curiosity, did your copy of the December issue arrive later than normal? (I'm asking, because mine didn't get here until about the 10th, far later than usual for me) I'll leave you a talkback so you won't miss my reply. ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 03:16, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Card set table

I've noticed this template popping up in a lot of card articles recently, and I recall your saying a few months back that it wasn't ready for deployment yet. Several cards related to Blackwings have it in there, as does "Wave Rebound". Is it ready for deployment at this point? If not, you may want to place a note on the template page itself that it shouldn't be used yet, if one isn't already there. If there is, then several users seem to be ignoring it. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 16:51, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

{{Card table set}} is definitely not ready for deployment; you should feel free to immediately revert anyone adding it to new articles, since I am going to be changing it in such a way as to break *all* existing uses (for SMW purposes, I have to add a language/region parameter, which will probably immediately follow the set parameter). There is already a notice on the template that it's not ready, so people are ignoring it. I could <noinclude/> the template code, but I would really rather avoid having to re-add the template to a handful of pages every time I want to test changes prior to it being deployment-ready. All that being said, I'm not seeing it on "Wave Rebound" (either in the current template or in its recent history; indeed, I'm not seeing *any* new deployments according to WhatLinksHere); are you talking about the {{Card table anime and manga appearances}} template series (which, in contrast, *is* ready for deployment)? ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 20:19, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
I was talking about the latter. Sorry for the alarm/confusion. Good to know it is ready then, I'll start using it myself when adding card appearances. Sorry again. Thanks. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 22:01, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
No problem. It wasn't alarm so much as annoyance. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 22:50, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
Seeing as your an admin and you seem to be online right now, would you please semi-protect Yami Bakura, Ryo Bakura, Marik Ishtar and Yami Marik? We've got an IP vandal targeting them (or a very devoted fangirl). Thanks. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 22:55, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
Semiprotected the first three for one day; Yami Marik doesn't have any edits since the 16th. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 23:02, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
Heh, I was hitting undo so many times I lost track of what articles they were. Thanks. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 23:04, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
Out of curiosity, when will the GX and 5D's manga versions of the template be up? Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 02:20, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
When someone asks for them. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 03:20, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
Well then, I'd like to officially ask for the GX one to made when you have some time. No rush. :) Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:25, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
I already made them; I was being too clever for my own good and never checked to make sure I got the links right. ;P ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 03:29, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
Nice. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:36, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thanksgiving Day and some other stuff...

"Happy Thanksgiving Day Dinoguy1000!"

Yeah I know what you are thinking mate; (*doesn't this lad from Greece know that Thanksgiving is tommorrow?...*)

To be honest, I learnt it fairly recently. But since I'll probably be dead busy tomorrow (aka away from the net) and since I really don't want to forget this one, well here I am.

Anyway, let's switch subject. I really like your avatar. No joke. I pretty much prefer this hottie over that grey, depressive, faceless fella. I believe it was an overall nice idea to pick this image. I suppose this beauty is from an anime show you watch?... --ΜοntΕchrísTο95 09:10, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Montechristo, you'll have to forgive my ignorance of any equivalent (or at least temporally close) Greek holiday. ;) Good luck with whatever's keeping you busy!
As for my avatar... I actually have no idea who she is or where she's from; I found the image on some blog or another and liked it enough to save it to my computer (that, and to see if I could ever find out what the character is from, if anything). She does look familiar, but I couldn't even begin to place her. =/ I've uploaded the original image to Photobucket, though. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:28, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
I think she's from a picture by Shunya Yamashita. You can see a fuller version of it here. -- Deltaneos (talk) 17:16, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
Aah, cool, thanks for pointing that out. =) Mystery solved. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:10, November 24, 2010 (UTC)
Surprised you don't know much abt any Greek holiday; isn't your ethnicity half Greek? I have read that on your wp profile. After all when I first saw your last name I immediately thought it was of Greek descent. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Also once again congratulations for your avatar. Though I have to admit I like it better fullsize. --ΜοntΕchrísTο95 17:59, November 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I am half-Greek, on my dad's side (and my last name is Greek; it's lots of fun watching people try to pronounce it for the first time! =D ), but he never really discussed Greek holidays that I can recall.
I agree about my avatar, too, I had no idea the designs in the background were part of a dragon (CompletelyMissingThePoint XD )! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:23, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Multiple Attributes

I want to talk about the page about changing attributes... I was wondering how you did it cuz when I edited it, I saw you did some code that I didn't understand. Still, I was wondering if that method was 100% accurate cuz I found that you missed Scroll of Bewitchment and I'm sure you're missing a ton more..... - Anak4569 19:27, November 27, 2010

Are you talking about Treated as Multiple Attributes? I didn't create that page, I simply updated the text that displays in the header of each box. The list of cards is created automatically based on certain information on individual card pages (which means the list is only as accurate as each card page). Scroll of Bewitchment only changes a monster's attribute, it doesn't allow a monster to have more than one.
If you know of any other cards that are not listed on either Treated as Multiple Attributes or Changes Attribute, list them here and I'll have a look, to see if they should be. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 19:42, November 27, 2010 (UTC)
